PORTSMOUTH – Following the conclusion of two more conference championships to add to his coaching accolades, Eric Putnam was named the Mid-South Conference Coach of the Year for both men's and women's cross country. Putnam has now been named the MSC Coach of the year seven times in his coaching career (four times on men's side and three time's on women's side). He has swept the men's and women's Coach of the Year honors three times, including each of the past two seasons.
PORTSMOUTH – Women's cross country moved up one spot to No. 15 in the final regular season Coaches' Top 25 Poll. Over this past weekend the women captured their fourth straight Mid-South Conference Championship. The No. 15 national ranking ties for the highest ranking in program history as the Bears have now achieved this ranking on three different occasions, included once earlier this season.
RIO GRANDE, Ohio – Simply dominant. Quite frankly that is the easiest way to describe how the women's cross country team performed at the Mid-South Conference Championships as the Bears clinched their fourth MSC title in as many years in the conference. The Bears had seven runners across the line amongst the top 10 finishers, including three of the top four placers to outdistance the University of the Cumberlands by 28 placing points.
PORTSMOUTH – A program record five student-athletes were named to the Mid-South Conference All-Academic squad for women's cross country team. Having five student-athletes named to the conference's All-Academic list tops the previous high for the team of four student-athletes which they had accomplished three other times in program history, most recently during the 2011 season. To be eligible for this honor, student-athletes must be at least in sophomore academic standing with a 3.25 GPA or higher.
